Car lovers, rejoice. This week marks the launch of Gran Turismo 6, the latest entry in the legendary racing series that has spanned three generations of PlayStation hardware.

Gran Turismo 6, which hits PS3 this Friday, is one of the most realistic racing simulators available in gaming. Developed by the passionate minds at Polyphony Digital, Gran Turismo 6 features 1,200 beautifully modeled cars to drive across more than 100 circuit layouts. Kazunori Yamauchi and his team, ever focused on detail, have brought along a new physics engine with fully active suspension, tire, and aerodynamics models.

Those of you interested in true-to-life racing needn’t look further than Gran Turismo 6. But if you’re hungry to enhance your PS4 library this week, the co-op puzzle game Tiny Brains launches on Tuesday. Coming along with it is a familiar hit in the form of Escape Plan– fully optimized for play on PS4. The PS4 version of Flow has been rescheduled for a later date.

PS Plus: Binary Domain & Oddworld: Stranger’s Wrath Free for Members

PS-Plus

Chances are, if you picked up a PlayStation 4 last week you’re still enjoying our PS4 PlayStation Plus titles, RESOGUN and Contrast, and that’s totally cool. However, if you’re anxiously waiting for your PS4 to arrive later this holiday season, we’ve got you covered with a new PlayStation 3 and PS Vita game this week. Binary Domain, a futuristic third-person squad-based shooter, is hitting the PS3 Instant Game Collection tomorrow. Morality meets gunfire, Binary Domain’s Consequences System means you’ll need to be aware of your actions — how your squad views you can impact the game as well as how the storyline progresses.

On PS Vita there’s Oddworld: Stranger’s Wrath, an action-adventure where you step into the role of Stranger, a bounty hunter. Whether or not you head into your bounties guns blazing or prefer a more stealthy approach is up to you, as well as whether you apprehend your subjects alive or dead. Your main goal is to earn as much money as possible, so it’s kind of like real life.

You can take advantage of all these PS Plus benefits after the PlayStation Store updates tomorrow.

In his quest to earn enough Moolah, Stranger reluctantly accepts the ultimate bounty from the owner of the Mongo River and suddenly his adventure takes a very different turn.

Thug-Geek’s Carissa attends Youmacon 2013!

Youmacon-2013-Logo

While this is posting under Damon’s name, it was written by a special guest: his wife, Carissa.

 

When you walk into a convention hall, you can never truly be prepared. You will encounter cosplay everywhere along an impressive spectrum, including everything from what someone could pull from their closet that day to outfits that took months to complete to perfection. You will find people with signs advertising free hugs at every turn, and may experience these hugs whether or not you’re a willing party. Echoing through the halls are famous lines shouted with meticulous accuracy by the fans that loved the character so much that they had to become them. If you’re not careful, you may find yourself in the middle of a fight scene from your favorite video game – and best of all, you’re welcome to join in.

Youmacon 2013 was my second convention, with Gencon a few months prior my only previous experience. As the two vary greatly in their fan base, with the former for anime fans and the latter for gamers, I was unsure of what to expect. I found all of the above and more. There is a sense of shatterproof camaraderie at events such as these. You’re all there because, to one extent or another, you’re a geek just like the girl beside you. She may be dressed as a startlingly accurate depiction of Sherlock Holmes with her Watson by her side, but you’ve got the first three volumes of your favorite manga in your bag, ink fresh from drying after your idol signed it an hour ago. As Simon Pegg said…

Being a geek is all about being honest about what you enjoy and not being afraid to demonstrate that affection. It means never having to play it cool about how much you like something. It’s basically a license to proudly emote on a somewhat childish level rather than behave like a supposed adult. Being a geek is extremely liberating.

What really impressed me about my four days in Detroit was that at any hour of the clock, I could find a group of people in cosplay and strike up an amazing conversation that proved how dedicated they were. The Bookers and Elizabeths were eager to explain their theories about Bioshock’s upcoming return to Rapture. Every Ellie and Joel couldn’t wait to anguish over the ending of The Last of Us. Lengthy discussions about the perfect balance of a Pokemon team could be embarked upon and often included guests of honor at the convention, such as David Michael Bennett from Steam Powered Giraffe. The people there to perform or host panels were as enthusiastic as the fans were.

A brilliant list of panels were brought forth from the convetion, held by impressive names such as Noah Watts and Adrian Hough, the voice actors behind Connor and Hatham Kenway of Assassin’s Creed fame. Sonny Strait held discussions on everything from Dragonball Z to one of the most famous independently published webcomics, Elfquest. Anime was represented in question sessions hosted by Michelle Knotz and Chuck Huber, and even on stage in concert with LOVERIN TAMBURIN. Nerd culture was hailed through the musical stylings of Random Gibberish, and everyone’s favorite musical automatons brought down the Renaissance Center with a truly magnificent show by Steam Powered Giraffe.

You’re not the only one if you’re passionate about a video game, comic book, or anime, but find yourself with a shortage of people to express it to. I personally believe that this is both why conventions exist and why they continue to grow each time they come around. Although I drove three hours to attend Youmacon alone, I was never lonely. There were like minded fans around every corner, and I formed friendships that will stay strong for years to come. If you need an escape to a world that is so much more fun than every day life, go to a convention. Go to Youmacon. Somewhere amongst the One Piece viewing room, the instructional bento-making panel, and the Doctor Who photo shoot, you’ll find me having the time of my life. You’ve got to experience it to understand. What are you waiting for?

Call of Duty: Ghosts weapon list revealed

Ghosts-Header

I hope everyone knows the Call of Duty series includes many weapons, from across all types. There are a lot of them in Ghosts, it seems to be around the same number as previous entries in the series at least. Players will have a choice ranging from compact sub machine guns to the high-powered long-range sniper rifles. There will be something to suit everyone here and compliment your teammates well.

A Twitter user by the name of @Espadah_ has been posted leaked images of the weapons that will be used in Call of Duty: Ghosts’ multiplayer mode. The images are a little blurry as they come from off-screen, but we can clearly make out the weapons and their names.

Ghosts will be set in the near future, this means some of the weapons will seem familiar but will have some tweaks on them to make them appear more futuristic. This isn’t a huge change to the design and look, however.

On to the weapons:

Assault Rifles:

  • SC-2010
  • SA0-805
  • AK-12
  • FAD
  • Remington R5
  • MSBS
  • Honey Badger
  • ARX-160

Light Machine Guns:

  • Ameli
  • M27-IAR
  • LSAT
  • Chain SAW

Sub-Machine Guns:

  • Bizon
  • CBK-MS
  • Vector CRB
  • Vepr
  • K7
  • MTAR-X

Shotguns:

  • Bulldog
  • FP6
  • MTS-255
  • Tac 12

Sniper Rifles:

  • USR
  • L1155
  • Lynx
  • VKS

Marksman Rifles:

  • IA2
  • Mk 14 EBR
  • MR-28
  • SVU Dragunov

The Marksman rifle is a new class coming to Call of Duty: Ghosts, with the power of a sniper rifle but the mobility of an assault rifle. These weapons are single shot powerhouses that I think a lot of players will lean towards during the beginning weeks of the game. Hopefully this doesn’t become the new MP7.

Call of Duty: Ghosts will be released on November 5th for PC, Wii U, and Xbox 360. Next-gen versions for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One will launch alongside the consoles on November 15th and November 22nd, respectively.

PS Plus: Sine Mora Free for Members

PS-Plus

Ever feel like you don’t have enough time? Well, that’s by design in Sine Mora, where classic shoot-em-up mechanics (or shmup, if you like saying funny words) are blended with a new twist: you’re racing against the clock. Instead of scoring points, you’ll hunt down enemies to gain precious seconds and hopefully avoid the Game Over screen.PlayStation Plus members get the PS Vita version of this title for free starting tomorrow.

It’s week 2 of our Sale of the Dead promotion, and that means you can save money on awesome titles like the recently released Puppeteer, the classic BioShock and the adorable Costume Quest. There’s a great variety of content available — check it all out below.

You can take advantage of all these PS Plus benefits after the PlayStation Store updates tomorrow, October 29th.

PlayStation Plus Update 10-29-2013
PlayStation Plus: Instant Game Collection

Sine Mora (PS Vita)

Free for PS Plus members, Regular Price: $9.99

Sine Mora
SINE MORA is a horizontal shoot’em up that provides a unique take on challenge, where time is the ultimate factor. Mixing classic shooter sensibilities with contemporary presentation, SINE MORA is a gorgeous shmup that offers a Story Mode that weaves an over-the-top tale and an Arcade Mode that provides deep, satisfying gameplay to challenge fans of the genre.

XBOX One’s manual leaked

20130902_xbox_one_default

A Portuguese version of the XBOX One’s user manual has supposedly been leaked, does it contain anything good though?

This manual has got some key facts regarding the new Kinect and also some interesting things regarding it’s functionality. The manual supposedly specifies things such as where it should be located and also what height it should be at.

With the new Kinect the minimum distance required between the player and the Kinect sensor is 1.4 meters, this is a good improvement from the XBOX 360′s Kinect sensor, which had recommended distances of 1.8 meters. It also noted that the Kinect should be sat somewhere between 0.6 meters and 1.8 meters from the ground.  These ‘requirements’ are greatly improved within the Kinect 2.0, so using it should be more feasible if you have a small room.

The rest of the manual does not specify anything else particularly new or unknown. It consists of warning such as not to stand the XBOX One up on it’s side, to be careful with the power – nothing new when it comes to an instruction/safety manual.

The manual also lists the full contents of the box, if you don’t know what’s included then here is a list;

  • XBOX One
  • Kinect 2.0
  • A headset
  • Two AA Batteries
  • A Manual
  • A Controller
  • Power Cable
  • HDMI Cable

If you’d like to read the Manual, then you can find it here. Do you think this is an improvement on the previous Kinect?

Xbox One is scheduled for release on November 22 in North America, Europe, and Australia.

 

EXCLUSIVE: Hands on with the DUALSHOCK 4!

imageedit_1_5678337942

Here it is, in all its glory, The Dualshock 4. The first impressions when taking this controller out of this box, is how beautifully made it is. The controller sure does feel nice in my hands. It is a bit bigger than the Dualshock 3, but it’s not a bad thing.

imageedit_3_2041213851

imageedit_5_5625610776

imageedit_8_3838711697

The thumbsticks being further apart makes it so my thumbs don’t hit each other when playing any FPS. The thumb sticks feel so much tighter and very responsive, they have thumb grooves so they don’t slip all over when playing for long periods of time. They also don’t pull up (dualshock 3 owners know what I mean) and don’t feel like they are going to break. Clicking in the sticks which are L3 and R3 feel better than ever, they feel more stiff and responsive.  imageedit_18_5971436090

The D-Pad feels more responsive, and it’s concave, which would make it suitable for fighting games like Tekken or Street Fighter.

imageedit_10_2845438942

The face buttons that we all have seen for almost 20 years feel great, the buttons push down with ease and don’t feel squishy like they do on the Dualshock 3.

imageedit_20_9811163611

Now onto the shoulder buttons, The L1 and R1 buttons are a bit bigger and respond well when using them. The L2 and R2 Triggers are my favorite, being that they curve out, they feel amazing, I don’t have to worry about my fingers slipping off, or throwing a grenade in Battlefield 3, or it fast forwarding a movie when I set the controller down.

Once the Playstation 4 drops, I will be able to do more of a review and there are features for this controller that I do not know how they function yet. So check back after November 15th, 2013 for a full review of the Dualshock 4 and the Playstation 4!

Hotline Miami
Hotline Miami is a high-octane action game overflowing with raw brutality, hard-boiled gunplay and skull crushing close combat. Set in an alternative 1989 Miami, you will assume the role of a mysterious antihero on a murderous rampage against the shady underworld at the behest of voices on your answering machine. Rely on your wits to choreograph your way through seemingly impossible situations as you constantly find yourself outnumbered by vicious enemies.
